The Safari West Wildlife Foundation is proud to offer a dynamic array of programs to today’s underserved youth. With your help, we’re able to introduce thousands of young people each year to an amazing world of wildlife and wonder! By providing educational opportunities all along with the cradle-to-career curriculum, we work to nurture and inspire the next generation of scientists, educators, and conservationists.
Thanks to generous donor support, we’ve been able to offer subsidized Discover Africa Treks to hundreds of underfunded schools, operate a thriving Junior Keeper program, provide a wildly popular Safari Summer Camp and our newest effort, Safari West Live So far this year, Safari West Live has been offered to over 8,000 children’s hospital beds around the United States.
Safari West Live streams a fully interactive safari experience into children’s hospitals nationwide bringing the timeless wonder and joy of the natural world to children during stressful and lonely times. For children’s hospitals, animals provide a special therapeutic value for ill children, thus contributing to their physical and emotional well-being. Research points to therapeutic play as a means to not only help ill children overcome hospitalization anxiety, but also supports recovery.
We hope we can count on you to help us continue to provide these much-needed opportunities for underserved youth.
